Canada Summer Jobs 2017
December 7, 2016
OTTAWA: Jim Eglinski, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, is inviting local employers to apply for funding through Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) 2017 to help create jobs for students next summer. Budget 2016 added $113 million per year for three years to the existing CSJ base funding of $107.5 million, doubling the number of students employed each year.
The Canada Summer Jobs initiative provides funding to not-for-profit, public-sector and small private-sector employers with 50 or fewer employees. It creates summer job opportunities for young people 15 to 30 years of age who are full-time students intending to return to their studies in the next school year.
“As in previous years, we are focusing on local priorities in the Yellowhead riding. This program will help provide experience and skillsets to students today so they can qualify for the relevant jobs in the future,” said MP Eglinski.
The application period for Canada Summer Jobs 2017 will take place earlier this year, running from December 5, 2016 to January 20, 2017. This will ensure students may be hired beginning in April 2017. Eligible employees can apply online at: www.servicecanada.gc.ca/csj or print off an application form from the website. Applications are available at any Service Canada Centre.
